I have been working at Foundation Center full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Benefits are excellent (currently they contribute 12% non-matched to your retirement after 2 years). Coworkers are generally very intelligent and easy to get along with (there are exceptions to that though). The organization's business model will be transitioning greatly within the next 5-10 years because of the open data phenomenon, but senior management knows this and is very forward thinking. The organization provides valuable services to the sector and is dedicated to openness and transparency.

Cons

Not much room for advancement in the current structure. The work in data (which I currently do) can be mind-numbingly boring and not challenging at all. In other departments though, the work can be varied and interesting.

    I worked at Foundation Center as an intern

    Pros

    Friendly staff, very welcoming. Great location and beautiful office space.

    Cons

    Staff meetings were pretty uninspired, people didn't always seem super connected to their coworkers or excited about the environment.


  2. "Skilled employees; uneven managerial talent at VP and Director-level managers"

    I worked at Foundation Center full-time

    Pros

    Employees well-educated and professional. Diverse workforce. Nice people. Interesting projects. Benefits goods. Workplace attire informal.

    Cons

    Laid off significant percentage of work force in 2009 and 2016, with growth in new jobs, then elimination of positions prior to 2016 layoffs. Uneven distribution of managerial, administrative and professional talent at senior levels. Department and/or staff reorganizations occur every 1 to 2 years.
